‘Misfits’ creator: Series 3 has ‘two big stories’

Howard Overman, creator and writer of Misfits, has hinted at the main storylines for the show’s third series, while will air on E4 later this year.

Speaking to SFX, Overman revealed: “There’s one slightly bigger storyline towards the end of Series 3. I think there are two big stories in all because we’ve got eight episodes this year. One is a sort of mid-season break. It won’t become like other shows where they’re saving the world, although in one episode they kind of do save the world.”

He also told the magazine that the cast’s trademark jumpsuits will be back, even though the characters finished their community service in Series 2: “That’s the look of the show. They’re on community service and their jumpsuits are their de facto superhero costumes, so I will be finding a way to get them back in the jumpsuits fairly quickly.”

The new SFX ‘Best Of British’ special is out in shops today.
